Show Preview: Richard Buckner @ Soda Bar Sunday March 17, 2013

Alt-country troubadour Richard Buckner will be making a rare appearance in San Diego on Sunday,  capping off a beautiful St. Patrick's Day. Currently residing in Brooklyn, Richard is currently completing his West Coast tour playing songs from his most recent album, Our Blood (Merge records). Five years had passed since his last release. A soundtrack was written but never came to fruition. Though nothing jumps out when listening, it is the mood that is cast by the well traveled singer. Each of his albums  is a little different, but his voice remains constant. This is what draws the listener to his work, and his cult-like fans know there is a passion that Richard shares with those familiar with his songs. The next chapter will be the yet to be released Surrounded. Hopefully those of us in attendance will get to hear a preview of some songs from this upcoming album. The show tomorrow will lean to the acoustic side, while the headliner will probably be seated during the performance. This is a Casbah Presents show and is 21+.

The Midnight Pine set the stage.

To get you in the mood, watch a video of Traitor (Sleepover Shows) below.
